Ephesians 4:14-16– we will in all things grow up.

You keep doing what your doing you keep getting what you’ve been getting.

1. Clarify the win

What do we want to accomplish

Small groups

  • C. Teaching everyone

Growth track

  • D. Present everyone perfect

Dream team (putting folks in ministry)

2. Measure your effectiveness

  • A. Collect the data

Having data helps us ask the right questions Proverbs 27:23-know well…

  • B. Evaluate the results

Don’t just work in it, work on it

  • C. Celebrate the wins
  • D. Confront the facts

3. Get better

If we get better our customers will demand that we get bigger- Truett Cathy (Chik-fil-a)

Quit judging others who are winning because then you’ll be a critic and not a student.

  • A. Grow yourself
  • B. Learn from proven models.

Find 3 other churches that are soon your ministry and build relationships and learn from them.

  • C. Focus on a few key areas
  • D. Make a tough call

  • E. Work on it everyday

4. Focus on creating a life giving culture

Focus on the soil. It’s the life giving culture.
